I wanted to say thank you to Kevin – who has been a great help to me in trying to navigate the Infrastructure side of Fedora. I’ve been working on a data project, in which working on some larger scale data sets of the Fedora universe would be required. In my own way of stumbling though these requests, I’ve been trying to avoid causing problems for people and finding the right way to make my requests for more information and data.

He has been both exceptionally patient but also kind in guiding me to the right path in my endeavors. I’m appreciative of everything he’s doing!


Fedora is my main workstation

*Well, this is me in the university, discovering all the topics about technology, someday, doing my homework about all the Operating Systems in existence, during the investigation I found the term “GNU/Linux”, my curiosity was very strong and force me to keep looking for more info about Linux, lots and lots of information were arriving at my mind, and I fell in love with Linux, but, I didn’t decided to what distro is for me, until I found Fedora, simply it just met all my expectations.
*And today, I use Fedora for Everything, in my Job, as Music Production, Servers, etc.
